ProjectConnect - Sign Ups

ProjectConnect is a student led series meant to introduce you to new people outside of your social circle and help to build community and belonging. Here at Midd finding deep connections can sometimes be tricky. In ProjectConnect groups you’ll go beyond small talk and really get to know people! Be a part of building our community. Participants meet in a small group for 6 weeks and get to know others through fun and meaningful discussion and community projects and meals. After signing up you will be placed in a group with a student facilitator and 4-6 other students. Groups meet the weeks of September 26th through October 31st for 1 hour per week in person.

Health coaching is never a replacement for medical care or mental health counseling and is not appropriate to address crisis or emergency situations.
